News & Announcements:


Outreach:  We are beginning our outreach activity for the summer this Sunday, an ingathering of school supplies for the Western Farm Workers Association in Hillsboro. They are anticipating a higher than normal demand during these uncertain times.  This is an activity we have done in the past and it is an important outreach to our greater Washington County community.  A bin and list of items is available in the narthex.

Come to Our 3rd Annual Garden Harvest Dinner: St. Gabriel's First Fruits Community Garden and the Yew Life Center are sponsoring our annual dinner again this year. Come and share in the great food and festivities. We will be featuring our famous smoked pulled-pork barbeque, lots of dishes from our great cooks and best of all, our dessert bake-off contest. Great fun! Mark your calendar: The date is Saturday, September 8, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the church. Each family can bring a dish of their choice: salad, side or main dish, or dessert. If you can make it with produce from your garden, even better. Vegetarian, vegan and dishes from your homeland are welcome. Be sure to bring the kids, we will have hot dogs to eat and young adults to supervise children in the playground.  So sign up now, just go to to let us know how many will be attending and what you'd like to bring. We're looking forward to seeing you!

Church school at St. Gabriel is offered most Sundays during our 10:00 am Sunday service. Every 4-6 weeks children sit in worship with their families and are provided with a pew project. On church school days children (including visiting guests) are welcomed into their grade level classroom. Prompt arrival in respect of children’s worship time is appreciated but if you are running late, please still join us- just slip in quietly. Children will be brought back into the worship space by teachers to take Communion with their families.

  • Preschool –Kindergarten: Godly Play. Please gather in large classroom #2 to the left of the kitchen before 10:00 am and teachers will invite them into the Godly Play classroom after gathering time.
  • 1st Grade- 3rd Grade: Seasons of the Spirit 1-3: Please gather in large classroom #2 to the left of the kitchen before 10:00 am.
  • 4th Grade -6th Grade: Seasons of the Spirit 4-6: Please gather in the Youth Room classroom #4 at the end of the hallway to the right before 10:00 am.



Infants- Age 3 1/2 Years: Our church nursery is open most Sundays during the 10 am service for infants and young children 3 ˝ years and under. Visiting families are welcome to use our nursery after filling out a brief registration form. Two caregivers will care for children and nursery parents are asked to come get their child from the nursery before Communion. Children older than 3 1/2 are welcome in church school or can sit in the worship space with their families.


St. Gabriel offers a free, drop-in Community Playgroup that meets weekly on Tuesdays from 9:00-10:30 am in our church nursery. Parents and caregivers can come with their infants and young children so the kids can socialize and play and the adults can find support. Sometimes we go on field trips together. You don’t need to be a church member to join in. Our host Rudy will make sure the coffee’s on! Follow our Facebook page at "St. Gabriel Play Group" to know what the weekly plan is at


7th- 12th Graders: St. Gabriel Youth Group is for 7th-12th graders, including friends, visitors and guests. Youth and leaders sit together on the pew with the purple fleece behind the acolytes on the right hand side during the 10:00 am service, then take early Communion and have a 15-20 minute meeting and discussion in the youth room after. 1-2 times a month the group does a service project or does something fun together. Rev. Marianne Allison+ is our Youth Minister.
